A New Look for Chinoiserie Chic


I have come to a difficult decision. I've decided that starting today I will no longer feature Chinoiserie. I have fallen so totally in love with the Belgian look in interior design that I can no longer contain my enthusiasm. I will shop only at Restoration Hardware. I will use only salvaged, worm eaten, unstained wood. No more color for me-only beige, gray, or white. Linen will be my fabric of choice. Patterned wallpaper and fabric will be relegated to the past. Industrial pieces will fill my home and blog. Sparse and monochromatic will be my new look. Stay tuned-I am even working on a reclaimed blog banner.

  7. People who love Chinoiserie have too much whimsy—and humor for the one step removed from the dumpster look. But thanks for my first laugh of the day.

  12. Long after this Beligian, hewn-out-of-boulders, bland-beyond-bland, fad of the year fades, you'll be blogging Chinoiserie. Imagine how ugly, clunky, and gray all of this Belgian stuff will look in five year. Sure, it has its appeals now, but later?

  13. This being my first time visiting your blog, I believed you. After reading the comments, I realized this is a joke. :-)

    Look forward to your Chinese-esque posts.

  16. Happy April Fools Beth.

    You know I've had a post sitting in draft form for weeks now railing about how sick I am of Belgian and how depressing RH is right now. I WANT COLOR!

  18. When I saw the picture I thought - she is going to bash it. And then, much to my surprise, it sounded complimentary! Until the worm part. So I hate to admit it, but it took me a sec to realize what was going on. Totally funny. Very nicely done ;)

  20. My mom and I both looked at each other and said "April Fools," but you picked a good style to want to switch to!

  21. Good one. Seeing as it was already April 2 on this side of the world by the time I read your post I didn't quite get it at first. Phew is all I can say!

  22. WHAAAAAT?????? Thank God this is April 1 or I would be very sad....there are enough people covering Belgian and your blog is a refreshing and colorful departure.
